CASCADIA International Women’s Film Festival celebrates the centennial of the 19th amendment with a special online screening of the 15-minute documentary film, “Inez Milholland: Forward Into Light,” directed by Martha Wheelock available free of charge August 15th and 16th.
The film honors suffragist Inez Milholland who literally gave her life fighting for the right to vote. Her martyrdom compelled women to be the first group to picket the White House, with Inez’s plea emblazoned on their banners: “How long must women wait for Liberty?” This civil disobedience and direct action pushed women’s suffrage front and center and finally into the 19th Federal Amendment.
